Anyone know what year thus is from and how much it is worth? Found this in my Great Grandfather's garage.

Part of a plaque given to gas station or bulk plants for years of service from oil companies. Usually was mounted to a wooden board as I used to have a few that were Pure Oil that if I remember right were bronze metal.
Don't think it's worth too much per the condition and missing the back board.

My great grandfather always took things apart and used it for other things so i assume the wood was probably used for something else. It was found mixed in with some old tools. He used to have a bunch of gas globes and signs but sadly those sre long gone as pickers came over in the 80's and took everything.

Thanks!
